Jed Mercurio is one of TV’s greatest and most prolific talents. Considered one of Britain’s most successful television writers, his shows are some of the most popular, regularly breaking viewing figure records. He’s written stories that cover everything from police anti-corruption, close protection and overworked junior doctors. His credits include Line of Duty, Bodyguard, Bodies, The Grimleys and Cardiac Arrest. He’s been nominated for, and won, multiple television and writing awards, including being nominated for both Emmy and Golden Globe awards for Bodyguard. When he’s not writing hugely-successful TV drama, he likes to relax by producing and directing his shows.

There have never been more opportunities for writers in television than there are now.
